Haibun Road Roundup Week 10

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 10

We are finishing up the tenth week of Haibun Road, a weekly haibun challenge from two weeks. I invited you to write a short paragraph and a haiku inspired by the by Basho as he as visits a hermitage he once studied at in Oku no Hosomichi (translated most often as Narrow Road to the North or Narrow Road to the Interior).

This week we had two haibuns from SketchingWords and myself.

Haibun Week Road 10 by SketchingWords shares a story her friend thinks is funny about not signing up to run a marathon.

Mission San Xavier del Bac by Cactus Haiku contemplating the 1700s and 1800s religious art, saints and history in a Tucson mission.

I hope you enjoyed or will enjoy reading them and that you will join us in our next haibun challenge (will be posted about 11pm Arizona Time). Haibuns can be any time during the week as pingbacks or pasted into comments.
